A statistical consultant known only as "Stanford PhD" has put together a table comparing the statistical capabilities of the software packages R, Matlab, SAS, Stata and SPSS. For each of 57 methods (including techniques like "ridge regression", "survival analysis", "optimization") the author ranks the capabilities of each software package as "Yes" (fully supported), "Limited" or "Experimental". Here are the first few rows of the table:

Of the 57 techniques listed in the table, here are the counts of the number fully supported ("Yes") by each package:

The table appears to have been last updated in late 2013, but doesn't include two other notable packages: Julia and Python. Anyone know of a similar table that includes those?
